German software 3D PhotoFormer for tool path generating 3D tool paths from greyscales

For milling or engraving of coloured and/or grey scale pictures/photos with file endings BMB, JPG!

Use any pictures available on the internet or those that you took with your digital camera. Even scanning and subsequent 3D engravings of old pictures, that are not available in digital form, are no problem and bear fantastic results on wood, Plexiglas, brass, plastics, engraving plastic materials, etc. For this purpose you may use coloured or black-and-white photos.

3D reliefs consisting of grey scale pictures … no problem.

By means of the software you can see the engraving results in a 3D preview at real time display from different viewing angles as well as simulate all milling steps.

You have access to a tool library, which can be extended by importing all milling parameters. You will get perfect results with this software in no time.

Furthermore this software can easily be connected to our 3D Scankit.

In order to accomplish this, you process simple casts of the reproducing parts and x-ray them in a specially translucid mass, photograph them thus making them reproducible by 3D PhotoFormer.

In addition to that this software is also able to produce background lighted lithophany pictures. These look very unimpressive in the first moment, however, they unveil their full beauty on a visible photo when it comes to background lightening.

Delivery includes clearing code via eMail.

This specially designed and compiled software can only be obtained at CNC-STEP! In addition to the available languages others can be added without much effort.

Available languages: German, English, Spanish, French, Chinese, Dutch, Italian, Polish
